“The correct acid/alkaline balance is absolutely crucial for the body to maintain good health.”
Over acidification leads to the overgrowth of microorganisms in the body and their poisons create disease. Microorganisms, germs, bacteria, viruses, fungi (candida) and mold thrive in an unhealthy, acidic environment. Maintaining pH balance allows us to experience good health, energy and vitality by avoiding harmful overgrowth of disease and cancer forming microorganisms.
"Being out of balance encourages overgrowth of microorganisms, the waste products from these microorganisms create more even acidity, this is a very vicious circle!"
The single measurement most important to health is the pH of blood and tissues – how acidic or alkaline they are. pH measures the degree of acidity-alkalinity of the blood and tissues (measured by the pH scale from 0 to 14), this is a very important indicator of health.
Oxygen is critical to health, and lack of oxygen has been linked to numerous diseases. Hemoglobin is the substance in the blood that transports this vital oxygen. As blood becomes more alkaline, hemoglobin is able to allow more oxygen molecules to attach to it. As a result, even slightly more alkaline blood is able to carry much more oxygen to the cells of the body.
Maintaining Blood pH
The human body attempts to maintain itself in a state of balance (called homeostasis). The body has built-in mechanisms for maintaining the acid-alkaline balance of the blood. Many foods that we eat turn our bodies highly acidic as they produce acids (e.g., phosphoric, sulfuric, and lactic acids) which after being processed in different ways are dumped into the bloodstream.
The blood is able to neutralize these acids with substances called buffers that react with the acids to produce far less acid substances, called salts. The body can then safely eliminate these salts via the urine, kidneys and the skin. The lungs are also able to expel weaker acids provided that they have been oxidized by the body. Sometimes the blood is unable to maintain its own pH within very narrow limits (approximately 7.35 – 7.45) due to a lack of these buffers. The body will then take more drastic steps to regulate the blood’s pH. This results in alkalizing, “bone-building” buffering materials being removed from the bones and tissues.
Calcium and magnesium are some of these materials that are often “robbed” from the bones to re-balance the blood pH. While good in the short run for neutralizing more acids in the blood, this robbery from the bones, as well as from other areas of the body, often leads to other problems in the long run, such as weakened bones. The result is often osteopenia (bone loss) and osteoporosis (severe bone loss), leading to fractures.
